Interesting, I got a phone call from (supposedly) Toronto Government yesterday after receiving a nice glossy in my inbox.
They would like MGL to move there. Nice incentives offered too.
I wonder how many SA companies they have been approaching with this ?

Just in case - don't worry, we are not going anywhere. Swapping the Cape for Toronto ? Got to be kidding...

Lots of aviation companies there. Also around Montreal where my daughter lives. Her husband also works for an aviation company.

Perhaps, but cannot take it with me when when time comes to board the last flight...

I have done my share of "cold" including a stint at the South Pole and living in Germany for 15 years.
Nope - all the money in the World is not going to convince me.
Besides - I like it here.

Point of my post was that I am worried about SA companies being poached by other countries.

Don't like this one bit.

True. Somerset West is a great place - my other daughter lives in De Velde.
And you sell internationally anyway which is a plus.

Our company also had an offer from a Canadian company - we did not bite though.

Canadians have lots of oil revenue and are using this to attract companies in particular in the tech sector - they know the oil is limited and are using the money wisely. I can understand that. Just don't like them poaching. SA cannot afford to loose productive and innovative companies.

Yes we export almost everything we make (we would not be able to survive on SA sales alone). Yes that is a plus, cannot deny that.

De Velde is just about across the road from MGL's offices.

How about making use of such an offer to setup a daughter/sister company. HQ here, branch there for sales, etc.

That way you also have a backdoor open for easy transfer Visa should you or anyone else in company want to make use of that.

Rainier, Canada has HUge oil reserves! Far more than most middle eastern countries.

They have unique challenges to retract it from snow and sand though..

Not a bad suggestion - don't know if I have the energy though...

Have a Nephew in Canada - Vancouver. He is a medical doctor and left SA with his family in tow over 10 years ago. However - he has eventually thrown in the towel. They are now moving to NZ. Much more livable destination in my opinion. I quite like NZ.
